Zucchini "Crab" Cakes 

After the news from the doctor, we had a fairly quiet evening at home. A friend came over for dinner and I made zucchini "crab" cakes. I like this recipe, but frying seems to be a cooking skill that I have yet to master. The basics are:

Peel the zucchini. If it's large, remove the seeds and pulpy interior; this step's not necessary for smaller ones with solid flesh. Grate the zucchini until you have about 2 cups, firmly packed. Put the grated zucchini into a colander, weigh it down, and drain for 2 hours or so. Mix the zucchini well with all the other ingredients. Form into small cakes and fry in a little canola oil until lightly brown on both sides.

It seems simple enough, and it is, but I don't know if I use too high a heat for the frying or what. None really burned, but some did get a little charring in places (I think mostly from the drippings from previous cakes; I had to fry them in about four batches).
